Cradle-to-cradle booklet
Cradle to Cradle Criteria for the built environment by Douglas Mulhall and Michael Braungart is a booklet aimed at providing planners with guiding criteria for developing a building with measurable cradle-to-cradle (C2C) features. The booklet was produced as a result of a priority expressed by government agencies to translate C2C into renovation and new construction of buildings.
